overdue diaper bag

My friend Sarah saw my diaper bag on the floor in my dad's living room. She asked everyone in the house who the "diaper bag that doesn't fall over" belonged to. I then promised to make her one also...that was almost three months ago. I'm embarrassed that it took me so long to sew, but we all get carried away in the stream of life sometimes and things get pushed aside.

Well, I'm happy to say it's finally done! I used fabric from Lizzy House's Red Letter Day line. The pattern is the Everything Bag in Amy Butler's Little Stitches for Little Ones.

***If you don't sew, you can ignore the next part or read and be bored!***

I'm not going to do a full pattern review, but I will say that it was pretty easy to sew up. The longest part was putting all the interface and fusible fleece on. I've made three of these bags so far and not found any errors in the pattern instructions. The only thing I don't like about the bag is that the divider is not attached at the bottom, so I may try to change that next time I sew it.

Oh and please excuse the poor lighting in that picture (and the messy desk).

What a lucky friend. This is a fabulous gift! I love Red Letter Day so it makes it even better :).

Isn't red letter day so cute! I still haven't gotten any of Castle Peeps yet, but see a quilt out of it in my future!

Thanks for the review. I'm planning to make this bag for my sister. Even though I have a lot of sewing experience I'm a bit intimidated to get started on this bag.

Dive in Rach! It's a lot easier than it looks!
